Police say a man and a woman were found dead inside an SUV with several gunshot wounds in Starrett City Monday.
Police say 39-year-old Petula Myrtil was found with multiple gunshot wounds to her body and 49-year-old Andre Myrtil was found with a gunshot wound to his head.
They say the incident happened just before 9:30 a.m. at the intersection of Louisiana Avenue and Twin Pines Drive.
"I was in the kitchen, I heard a helicopter, I looked out but I don't see anything...kind of surprising in the day, in the morning, 9 o'clock, it's a quiet area anyway," said a neighbor.
Police say a gun was found inside the vehicle. They say the investigation is ongoing at this time.
